I wonder if the large piece with the cover is a mustard or a jelly.

OK I read most of it. Very interesting. Thank you. Does this give you any clue about what it's worth?

That is very unique, Toni. I personally haven’t seen one like it. Are there any marks? It looks like silver plate to me versus silver. Marks on either the glass or the metal would be helpful.

Hello. Can anyone give me information about this salt caddy I inherited from my grandparents. I believe that it's silver. The master salt in the middle has a lid that opens. I haven't seen anything like it nor how much it maybe worth. Thank you

Welcome, Mark. I count about 70-75 in you photo. Would you say these are representative of the 600? You have a few nice clear pattern glass salts there and many that are rather common. Without being able to see all 700 or inspect them for chips, etc., it will be difficult to assess the value. We do have some people who check this chat board who buy collections. Best to ask one of them what they typically pay per salt. Again, it looks like you have a few goodies in this picture!

Hi, Lauren! Welcome! The salts your grandma gave you are not pattern glass. They are intaglio glass salts. I would guess circa the 1920s. They are most likely Czechoslovakian. They are lovely! Some salt collectors focus their collections on intaglio salts, which can also be found encased in beautiful brass holders, often encrusted in “jewels” which even though not precious gems create a fabulous presentation. Bottom line... grandma done good! Enjoy!

Hello, I am new to collecting glass and my Grandma has given these to me, she told me they were used for salt on the table. Can someone tell me anything more about them? What the pattern is and around what year they could be from?
